Anyone seen (or own) a Macho Palladium yet?

So has anyone actually gotten the Macho Palladium yet? No interest in this piece? I am leaning toward getting one, but am a little leery of getting one sight unseen. Anyone want to share a wrist shot so I can see how the asymetrical case looks. I am looking at the silver dial/strap version (278-70/609). This would be my first UN piece.

Thanks in advance,

Blake

... they show the Anniversary 160, but it shares the same case design with the Macho, so you should be able to study the very peculiar outlines rather well:

We had these in our News Central section already since a while, although ...

... they unfortunately do not show the case's very unique shapes when seen from the side.

I don't have one but...

I handled the case metal before it went into production at UN.

I was and still am VERY impressed with the brightness of the metal, it almost GLOWS, unbelievable!!!

Also, altho it seems very heavy.

I like weight.

Having a similar shape 160 UN, I highly , very highly, recomend this watch. The case construct and shape is 100% absolutely desirable, I can't find words...it is not "beautiful", but it is just VERY desirable..funny.

Thanks so much Bernard. I had the opportunity to handle both dial versions of the Macho at my local dealer last night (along with the Anniv. 160 and some other goodies). I was a little wary of the shape of the dial, but I have to say that I was taken aback by how much I liked it. The casework and finishing were great. I also really liked the Anniv 160, but I just wished it came with a white or silver face rather than the blue face.

This might be my first UN purchase.

US Retail for the two on the strap is $19.8K. On the bracelet is ~30ishK. I saw them at a trunk show that my local dealer had for UN this weekend. They had both the dial variations, and I have to say that while I liked the black/blue dial, the silver one really stood out for me. I liked the watch more than the Anniv. 160 that they had there (sorry Bernard!) because while it was a beautiful watch, and the movement is truly something special, I really did not like the blue dial. If it was made with a silver dial, that would have pushed it over the top.

I am seriously thinking about the silver dial MP 950 as my first UN watch. I like the fact that it comes with a palladium deployment, not just a buckle.

at the front window of the Ulysse Nardin boutique in Hong Kong. It was explicitly listed as being "not for sale however"
